Stuck in her family's apple orchards, Kat's got plenty of work to do and only pesky Jeremy to help. But when Jeremy convinces her to run away, Kat will discover that nothing---and no one---in her life is quite what it seems. Wonderfully reimagined, this is the magical tale of Snow White as you've never read it before!
This was an original take on the Snow White fairytale, mainly because it's narrated by the magic mirror, you know the one which shows the evil queen (named Queen Radiance in this book) what she wants to see. This one executes the story differently, the mirror is actually a man trapped in a mirror and he watches the princess, named Kat, secretly hoping that she'll overthrow the Queen but when the Queen sees her in the mirror she sends Trevor, a young helping hand at the castle to seduce and murder the princess (who has no idea that she's a princess). There are so many twists along the way, few characters are what they seem... Trevor and Kat's love interest Jeremy both have big secrets and the man in the mirror has a twist as well. These twists definitely added to the book and I couldn't put it down
Overall, this is definitely the type of book that you want to read in front of a warm fire with a cup of hot chocolate and maybe a nice box of choccys. I really did enjoy reading it, it was a great read and so much fun.
